Scott Firth picked up the save for Tri-City with a perfect ninth inning and a strikeout.

Marcos Derkes scored the only Dust Devils run after reaching on an infield single and getting to second on an error. He advanced to third on a groundout by Sam Bumpers before he scored on a wild pitch for the only run of the game.
